Description

at least for me, it would be useful to be able to generate the reference documentation for a module as a tex file.

this could be done e.g., with a command such as

/documentation/generate tex

History

#1 Updated by Julien Rabin almost 9 years ago

Maybe another option could be that we generate the doc as Textile ? I bet we could then use a Ruby-based convertor to html, Tex or whatever depending on our use (building installer, put doc online or any other personnal use).

[edit] a quick Google session revealed Deplate (http://deplate.sourceforge.net/) for example [/edit]

besides html, latex export works now:

documentation/generate --> opens save dialog to generate html file
documentation/generate html --> opens save dialog to generate html file
documentation/generate foo --> opens save dialog to generate html file
documentation/generate tex --> opens save dialog to generate tex file

documentation/generate html filename --> will generate html file with the name 'filename'
documentation/generate tex filename --> will generate tex file with the name 'filename'

the latex file needs to be compiled three times by Latex so that the tables are formatted correctly.
